WORDS of Encoragement!

Everytime I read these 5 verses from the book of Romans they just seem to speak so loudly to me (especially with all that we see and hear going on in the world today!) I figured surely someone else will be blessed by what they have to say. I wanted to go ahead and share with everyone these encouraging words and to remind everyone we have a GREATER HOPE than those with out Christ and we can REJOICE in troubled times.

ROMANS 5:1-5

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have PEACE with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and REJOICE in HOPE of the GLORY of God. And not only that, BUT we ALSO GLORY in tribulations, KNOWING that tribulations produces PERSEVERANCE, CHARACTER; and CHARACTER HOPE. Now hope DOES NOT DISAPPOINT, because the LOVE of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was GIVEN to US.

God Bless!

Amen Brotha!!!
I have no earthly idea how mothers allow their children to "be" in this world without having the assurance and peace that comes from knowing CHRIST and knowing that we have protection from above. I would be a basketcase if I didn't stand firm and strong on those kinds of scriptures! Thanks for the great reminder!
